Harrison County Commission met today and declared a proclamation that March of 2014 be Bi-County Nutrition Program Month as part of March for Meals.
Bi-County Nutrition runs the meals on wheels program for the county and delivers about 500 meals a day.
Executive Director of Bi-County Nutrition Wanda Carrico said meals on wheels is an important program in the community.
"In our area there's a lot of seniors and most of their families are gone and live out of state, so they need somebody to bring them at least one hot meal a day. The most important thing I think for them is someone checking on them everyday," Carrico said.
In honor of March for Meals the commissioners will help deliver meals next week.
